The New Employee

By Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

The Investor insisted I hire another reporter. So here he is settling in during his first day of work.
Name: Jeffrey
Age: 1
Occupation: Morning Scratch reporter

I, Bogdan, welcome him with a hiss: "Stay out of my office!"

Sara: Hi. Want work on a story together?

Kat 3: Back it up, dude. Your breath stinks!

Shelter Saturday and more

By Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

More birthday news before I get to Shelter Saturday. My good buddy Monty Q. Kat pimped me up for a birthday present. I got shades and a pimp hat! Check it out at his blog. Click here.

Fish with catnip insides ... haute cuisine! Thanks, Scooter!

Here are some shelter kitties. They are, from left, Snap, Ginger and Douglas. They are the brother and sisters of Jeffrey - of whom the Investor has taken a bazillion photos.

They are very feral. My Investor thinks it is very strange that Jeffrey is so outgoing, while his family is so scared. Only Snap will go up to the Investor, but she does not want to be pet. The other two, particularly Douglas, want nothing to do with her. (I can't blame them! She stinks like human sometimes! That's why her arms require baths from Sara and me.)

7th Birthday Celebration

By Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

Maybe my Investor forgot my birthday, but all my great friends didn't! Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. Thank you to my buddy Monty Q for sharing on Cat Blogosphere.

After I reminded my Investor of her forgetfulness, she gave me Fancy Feast and Greenies.

And check out the gift I received in the mail from my very good friend Scooter:

Easy Like Sunday Morning

For me
When is brunch served?

For the humans

For the cats at the shelter
Did you see something MOVE? Cooooool.

Shelter Saturday

By Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

So, the Investor has been spending time with other cats without my permission. They live at North County Humane Society. She does the newsletter, which you can download here, and she pets and plays with the cats there. NCHS is a cat-only shelter.

One thing I'm very concerned about is this:

There must be a bazillion photos of him on The Morning Scratch camera. Hmmmm.

April Fools answer

By Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

The April Fools rap was by Angus.

Sorry for the delay in the answer. The Investor had to serve on a jury and work long days. It's really unreasonable for all these outside activities to continue.

In other news, we here at The Morning Scratch have been sleeping in sun puddles and eating vishus deer.

April Fool's Rap

In honor of the Fool's day
I thought I'd do a rap
Maybe you could guess who
Is never smokin' catnip
My tail is kinda short
An' bushes up to tell you
You don't come into my house
Without you been invited
When it comes to walkin'
I get a little help
My boys add up to
Somethin' more
And I twirl on the floor
My girl she is a strange one
She has a thing for hair
My stripes they call her over now
But I just tell her "Ciao".
My ride is like a whirlwind
But it don't really matter
Cause my love for Pit'r Pats
Is just gonna make me fat-ter
That's all I've got to say
Yeah, I've given you some clues
And if you guess who I am
I'll send the first five food.

Where's the Morning Scratch?
